PIH Health recently engaged their diverse community with an extension of their cross-cultural Medicare campaign. Serving the Los Angeles County with their network of hospitals, urgent care centers and physician groups; the seasonal arrival of Medicare Open Enrollment meant the timing was right for an informative campaign. Their goal being to engage their senior community by offering informational seminars on various health and wellness topics, educate their community on the benefits of staying active and healthy, and assist in simplifying the at times complicated Open Enrollment process.
The Johnson Gray team met this complex situation head on by starting with both qualitative and quantitative research. With expertise in pinpointing and implementing multicultural media options, we achieved high efficiency and reach for PIH Health’s ethnically diverse target audiences. Our strategy helped catapult this noteworthy campaign with print, online, outdoor, TV, digital, and direct mail pieces in English, Spanish, and Chinese.
The creative concept made an emotional appeal that resonated culturally within each group. Collateral portrayed people enjoying healthy, active lifestyles. This was in line with PIH Health’s desire to inform prospective users of available resources and help them make the best choices for their healthcare needs.
As a dedicated group of multicultural Vikings, the Johnson Gray team was excited for PIH Health to see a notable increase in attendance at their personal wellness workshops, even surpassing forecasted numbers.
The month of January is named after the Roman god Janus who is usually depicted with having two heads facing in opposite direction. One head to look back at the year behind us, evaluating our regrets and celebrating our successes and the other to look forward to the future year to make resolutions and hope for the best.
In honor of the head looking back and focusing on agency accomplishments we asked President of Johnson Gray Advertising, Will Johnson, to share one of his most memorable creative accomplishments.
Exactly 20 years ago in 1994, Will launched a campaign for Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital, who is still a client with a slight name change, Marina Del Rey Hospital. The “Chest Pain” campaign was well acknowledged and received numerous national awards including an OBIE (Outdoor Advertising Association of America) for the outdoor board in 1995.
